    Merchandising Development Program Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Framingham, MA
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at TJX Companies (Framingham, MA) in April 2017.

    Interview

    Similar to other descriptions on Glassdoor. Interviewed online through automated process, then was flown out to headquarters. Interviewed with 6 other people, 3 of which were already full time employees of TJX. During the allocation exercise I was unclear exactly how to proceed, but the candidates who already worked there knew exactly what to do. Did not get the position, I assumed they hired from within.

    Interview

    Had 1st interview through HireVue. Make sure you practice, practice, and practice A LOT before you tape the real one. Make sure you have the lighting good. And make sure the camera is not looking up your nose. The practice questions were NOT included in the real taping. Take a deep breath and you will do fine.

    Merchandise Associate Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at TJX Companies (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Interview was pretty easy and straightforward. Manager asked me generic questions about customer service and times when I demonstrated exceptional customer service. Especially around the holiday season, they mostly care about getting bodies through the door rather than hiring the best people for the job and industry.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at TJX Companies (Framingham, MA) in October 2016.

    Interview

    Applied for MDP but apparently wasn't qualified. Recruiter asked me to apply to be an MA so I did and had a hirevue interview within a couple days. About a week later was asked to come in to the office for an interview. All questions were situational and they never once asked about my experience and why I'd be a good candidate. I just don't understand how they can decide if I'd be a good fit from asking the same questions over and over just worded differently.
